I like Asana a lot. But each time I create a task involves some inefficient steps that are pretty annoying.
- I assign all tasks to myself, which requires two clicks. If I want all tasks to default to being assigned to me, I should be able to do that. Having looked at Asana forums over the years, I know that people have been complaining about this for a long time. I imagine that someone at Asana has this purist vision of how the tool should be used and they probably insist that the way everyone uses their product is wrong.
- I mark most of my tasks as Today, Upcoming, or Later. But this is frustrating exercise, too. It takes series of keystrokes, which is often frustrating because if the cursor isn’t in some mysterious special spot that I never seem to be able to replicate consistently, I have to click around and repeat the shortcuts (which I often don’t remember anyway). It’d be nice if I could just click that and make it happen.
